Welcome to the UCL Research Department of Cell and Developmental Biology

The Research Department of Cell and Developmental Biology is one of the largest departments at UCL. It is part of the Division of Biosciences in the Faculty of Life Sciences (FLS) and brings together excellent, internationally competitive cell, developmental and evolutionary biologists to provide coherence of research strategy in the exciting fields of Life Science.

Clock Club meeting

"Clocks, rhythms and sleep" is a new monthly meeting where academics from CDB, NIMR and the London area informally come together to discuss topics relating to biological time and oscillations. Current emphasis is on circadian clocks, sleep, somitogenesis and related cellular oscillations - how they work and how to study them. The next meeting is on August 1st with short presentations from Ralf Stanewsky, Denis Burdakov and James Jepson. Future meetings will be held on September 9th, October 14th and November 11th. 

YEN Banner

The Young Embryologist Network was set up in 2008 by PhD students in the UCL Research Department of Cell & Developmental Biology under the guiding hand of Dr Yoshiyuki Yamamoto. The purpose of the network came from a desire to improve communication in the research environment for PhD and Post-Doc embryologists.
